Your Comment “https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_McCullouch

Reason Unable to verify.

We were unable to approve this contribution.We have been unable to verify your contribution. Unfortunately we were unable to accept your submission as we were unable to verify the information provided."

Can't understand why unable to verify.
'Gerald' himself has several times submitted correction but no solution.
Here are screen shots from the above wiki link
and also from fb page 


I hope the error will be rectified this time.

Thanks

Birth and especially death dates can be tricky, since Wikipedia (and perhaps also social media) is not accepted as ”proof”. It’s best to wait for the official reply from the staff, but it could be that more info is needed.


Also remember that this is a public forum, so if there are personal info (I guess Facebook page could be treated as such if the person’s page is not available to public?), it’s best to use the IMDb help desk:

https://help.imdb.com/contact

EDIT: Oh, and IMDb will need your reference number for your birth date submission. Found from ”Your contributions”.

Hi
The reference number is 190509-080537-556000 

Its birth place not date and facebook page is of Gerald himself and is publically viewable and this correction has been requested by Gerald himself.

Thanks.

Hi Prritiy -

Concerning your initial submission, please note that while we will review Wikipedia links, we often will require secondary evidence to help verify the information.

In this case, I have now adjusted the location of birth for Mr. McCullouch and the change should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!
